Let’s be honest, all of the elements that go into a wedding day are pure magic, but it usually ends up that the reception is the real show-stopper.

Without further ado, here are our most popular and favorite receptions of this past year (and don’t miss our top fashion, ceremonies, and bouquets of 2016 either!):
